10 Corso Como, Milan

Milan, 2012

Oxidized Cor-ten

The cult concept store Corso Como 10 in Milan, which combines fashion, a restaurant-café, a bookstore specializing in art, design and architecture, galleries for exhibitions and debates, takes its overall image outside, into the street and therefore the city, thanks to a large Cor-ten sculpture by Kris Ruhs. The work is composed of perforated sheets that intersect to create a light volume, almost a large sculptural origami marked by the materic character of the metal that compacts the form like a monolith. This small but recognizable urban landmark contains echoes of the work of Richard Serra and Brancusi, reinterpreted in a contemporary way to contribute to the quality of a specific urban landscape. Marzorati Ronchetti has made the entire structure with programmed laser cutting and welding, putting maximum care into the production and organizing all the logistics for its assembly at the site.
